FLUKE - FLK-CNX 3000 GM CAL -
This is the most amazing meter I have ever had my hands on.
Things sure have changed from the days of analog volt ohm meters.
The CNX3000 is the most advance metering system I have ever used.
Twenty five years ago when I was first getting into the appliance repair and refrigeration field I never could have dreamed of such a wireless meter system as the CNX3000.
Fluke did a awesome job designing the meter. Everything from the iFlex and test leads, amazing display and wireless modules is just perfect.
I feel the Fluke CNX 3000 General Maintenance System has just given me a taste of the possibilities of what the CNX system is capable of.
Being a appliance repair technician by trade being able to measure and monitor voltage and amps is a must and the CNX3000 Maintenance System does that very well, but I want more.
Adding the Fluke CNX t3000 K-Type Wireless Temperature Module is on my list of must have items now. Just thinking of the possibilities!
Being able to monitor and log refrigerator, freezer, oven and dryer temps with the Fluke CNX t3000 K-Type Wireless Temperature Module would be simply amazing and being able to show the temp logs to the customer would be the icing on the cake!
The iFlex is nice, but the Fluke CNX a3000 AC Wireless Current Clamp Module sure looks sweet too.
It's about time I replace my old analog clamp on amp meter and I think the Fluke CNX a3000 AC Wireless Current Clamp Module would fit the bill nicely.
The CNX 3000 Wireless System seems to have endless possibilities and I'm sure that I will discover more of them as time goes on.
I wonder about the benefits of the CNX wireless thermal imaging.
Would be cool to 'see' the temps of refrigeration systems!
Like I said, endless possibilities.
Fluke for life!
btw: I tried to upload some photos of my CNX3000, but they are just under the accepted size so if you would like you can view them at this URL or maybe Fluke can add them to this review for me.

Fluke CNX 3000 reduces time in arc flash PPE.
The CNX 3000 data logging feature with a laptop or tower PC can cut down on the time one has to wear NFPA70E required PPE by being able to monitor up to ten transmitters at once. Plant managers should consider this system.

Meters are a way of life for me. I have done a lot electrical and electronic work for over 30 years - yeah, I'm getting old.
I've been a building contractor, and an electronics enthusiast/product designer - VOM's to me are like a what a rifle was to a cowboy - Gotta have a good one.
Anyway, ironically my first meter was a Fluke way back in the '80's. Used it everyday for at least 5 years. It wasn't mine, it belonged to the company I worked for - and when I left to go to work elsewhere - I lost "my" Fluke. Haven't had one since - just used whatever I was given.
Now I'm back with a Fluke in my hand. It's nice. Really nice.
The CNX 3000 is Almost Perfect but with one minor irritation which I'll mention first: 400ma dc current maximum isn't high enough for some of the small-signal work that I occasionally do.
Now the good stuff:
A) Holy Cow - the quality! in all components is just as I remembered - "TipTop". No. actually it's better than I remember. Even the probes are amazing.
B) Wireless - Really? - Initially I thought "I'll never use it". Actually tried it - now I realize how handy that could have been when I built my own home. I'm sure that it'll come in handy for other apps that I don't even imagine yet.
C) Display - Backlit when you want it and easy to read by an old guy.
D) Carry/storage case - great quality, but it probably won't get used much - because the Fluke is replacing my old (name withheld because it's embarrassing) DVM. Looks like my 12 year old son's gonna get a new toy - he wants to be "an inventor".
E) My Envy is gone - I no longer have it. Although it'll probably be heavily directed AT me by some jealous associates.
All-in-all -aside from the DC current "limitation"- very well made and thought-out instrument.
I'm happy to have a Fluke once again :-) This meter will certainly out-last me - When my 12 yr old turns 30, maybe I'll let him have it then? ;-)

This meter could easily take the place of some other monitor systems
With safety being the number one priority for our business the new CNX3000 monitoring package can provide the capability to take measurements and not compromise safety. This new package is a wireless voltage and current data collection system that will allow the user to capture voltage readings in equipment that would otherwise compromise safety. Voltage readings can now be taken with the door closed and will continue to provide the extra level of protection. This interface allows our technician to either review the data right on the wireless multi meter or download the voltage readings right to the PC for report generation. The ease and connectivity of the device is seamlessly easy and straight forward to understand and allow for an easy connection with the PC or wireless meter.
The wireless current was also seamlessly easy to connect to the PC or handle device. The current clamp provides three options for the user to select to take readings. The Log function trends and records the AC current of the circuit. This will also measure the frequency of the circuit for later trending and plotting of the circuit. The inrush option, when selected will setup the wireless current device to record current wirelessly. The PC interface will allow for minimal configuration and to adjust the sampling rate of the device.
I like it!

this is a great product with all the features and fexibility it offers by being able to monitor from a safe distance away. this product enables the flexibility of remotely being a safe distance away and still gathering accurate data. I would recommend
